Welcome to the jungle,” says a placid British voiceover to a room full of elegantly dressed diners. “Soon you will be confronted by a wild animal.

‘A Gentleman’ Trailer: Sidharth Malhotra Is Bollywood’s James Bond In This Action Comedy — Watch
There’s a little something for everyone in “A Gentleman,” Bollywood’s summer action comedy which released a jam-packed trailer yesterday. Starring Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez, “A Gentleman” follows a simple working man who gets mixed up with high-level criminals in a case of mistaken identity — or is it? The movie also stars Bollywood action favorite Suniel Shetty, though Shetty has been mum on just how big a role he plays.

The trailer shows a bit of everything one might want in a summer action movie: High-speed car chases, a blossoming romance, nosy parents, and enough jumping out of buildings to make James Bond nod in silent approval. Malhotra removes his shirt in a boat and a car, and Fernandez shows off some pole moves. If we’re going for thrills — mission accomplished.

‘Eyes Wide Shut’: Why Stanley Kubrick’s Erotic Masterpiece is His Most Immersive Film — Watch
Eyes Wide Shut” is turning 18 years old on July 16, and nearly two decades later it remains one of Kubrick’s most mystifying and immersive experience. A brand new video essay from the great Nerdwriter1 puts Kubrick’s last film under the microscope and examines the different strategies the filmmaker used in order to make it one of his most involving movies.

“We often think of Kubrick as a highly stylized director, which he was, but crucially Kubrick never let us forget what the purpose of style is,” the video essay begins. “Style is a lens that gives the viewer a point of access to the material — it’s about the audience, not the director.” Whereas Kubrick’s style in certain films forced the viewer to take an observational approach, “Eyes Wide Shut” operates in a much more immersive fashion.

‘Logan Lucky’ Footage: Steven Soderbergh Unleashes A Very Wacky Daniel Craig Performance — Watch

‘Logan Lucky’ Footage: Steven Soderbergh Unleashes A Very Wacky Daniel Craig Performance — Watch
Daniel Craig is best known for donning the suave looks and sharp tuxedos of James Bond, so the sight of him in a prison uniform with bleach blonde hair and an accent that sounds like a drunkard southern drawl comes as quite a shock in the first extended clip from “Logan Lucky.”

The movie marks the return of Steven Soderbergh after his retirement from feature filmmaking four years ago, and it appears his knack for getting actors to go way against type is still very much intact.

‘Belle de Jour’ 50th Anniversary Trailer: One of the Most Erotic Films Ever Made Just Got Sexier
Belle de Jour,” Luis Buñuel’s erotic drama about a bored and troubled housewife who turns to prostitution for titillation, remains one of the great achievements in surrealist and erotic cinema after 50 years. Lucky for cinephiles, the movie is celebrating its semicentennial anniversary by returning to the big screen with a major 4K restoration. Let’s just say Séverine’s fantasies have never looked so sensual or felt more dangerous.

Catherine Deneuve is front and center as Séverine. She pretty much lives the perfect bourgeois life — she’s married to a wealthy surgeon, has all the time in the world and accrues admirers wherever she goes. But under the surface Séverine is consumed by virulent sexual fantasies that threaten to dissolve her sanity. Behind her husband’s back, she decides to indulge in her fantasies, which range from masochism to bondage. She joins a local high-class brothel,

David Lynch and the Iconic Paintings That Inspire His Visual Style — Watch

David Lynch and the Iconic Paintings That Inspire His Visual Style — Watch
David Lynch is one of the industry’s most visual filmmakers, which makes his love for painting and art history a no-brainer. While he will often pull inspiration from other great directors — just look at the most recent episode of “Twin Peaks” and the way it evoked Kubrick and Malick — his biggest visual influences are works by iconic painters like surrealist René Magritte, realist Edward Hopper and figurative painter Francis Bacon.

A great new video essay from VoorDeFilm (via No Film School) puts some of Lynch’s most memorable images right next to the paintings that inspired them, and the similarities are uncanny. Each shot finds Lynch twisting the original artist’s style into his own, and the side-by-side comparisons speak greatly to what it is that makes Lynch’s cinematic style so unforgettable.

'WWE Raw:' A Reboot to the Face
Different cultures wipe their slate clean at varying points on the Gregorian calendar. For instance, Jews around the world celebrated Rosh Hashanah just over a month ago, while Chinese descendants await their annual New Year festivities this coming February.

For the WWE, last night's Raw represented some kind of fresh start in their cyclical programming, as several superstars either went back to the drawing board and/or returned from hiatus, ready to spark new rivalries and set aside any residual SummerSlam rancor. As always, in the interest of providing a service to you readers,

Vladimir Blazevski Declares Punk's Not Dead

A punk rock film out of Macedonia? The two things may not appear to go together but Vladimir Blazevski's Punk's Not Dead has won a good bit of international praise and from the look of the trailer it's not hard to see why.Protagonists of this black-comedy are punks who deliberately remained at the margins in muddy times of Macedonian transition. The routine of their outsider's survival is disturbed by an offer to make a reunion of their one-time cult punk band and play at some bizarre "multi-cultural-happening", which is to prove the false image of Macedonia as a land with relaxed ethnic tensions.Raw and energetic, this one is not particularly work safe. Check the trailer below....

The Complete List of All 60 Films Submitted for Foreign Language Consideration at the 2012 Oscars

Update: The total is now 60 films as Steve Pond at The Wrap informs us the Domenican Republic's submission La hija natural has been accepted. He also says we should expect four or five more films to be added to the list by the time things are said and done. My original post follows...

The deadline for countries to submit films for consideration at this year's Oscars was Monday, October 3 and this year's list is a little lighter than last (so far) as 60 countries have offered up submissions compared to 66 last year and 67 the year before that. Looking over the complete list, which I have included directly below and can always be viewed in my "The Contenders" section right here, there are a few that stand out based on what I've heard, but then again, this is the first year I can ever remember where I haven't seen a single one of the entries.

Punk's Not Dead

There have been so many exegeses of punk rock—including the recent documentary American Hardcore—that there wouldn't seem to be much need for Susan Dynner's "people's history" Punk's Not Dead. But Dynner brings a broader perspective. Rather than breaking punk down into its UK, NY, DC, and La golden ages and leaving other scenes and eras out to dry, Dynner treats punk as an ever-evolving, eternally relevant movement that keeps producing great bands and vital scenes. Few would put modern million-selling pop-punkers on the same plane as U.K. Subs or Minor Threat, but Punk's Not Dead rightly notes that for some kids out there now, The Offspring are old-school and The Used changed their lives. Punk's Not Dead starts with the first punk explosion in the late '70s—complete with scenes from tongue-clucking episodes of CHiPs, Donahue, and Quincy—then jumps ahead to Rancid and Green Day,
